Thanks to modern advances, there is now a non-surgical version of the popular rhinoplasty procedure. By strategically placing a custom blend of dermal fillers, our team at the Paradise Valley Skin Klinic™ can sculpt a subtly enhanced nose that fits in beautifully with the rest of your features.
The benefits of a non-surgical approach
Surgery is associated with downtime, swelling and bruising that may last more than one week. A non-surgical approach leaves mild redness for a few days, and possibly light swelling and bruising, but patients may resume their normal activities immediately.
The cost for injectable fillers is extremely minimal when compared to that of a surgical procedure. There are long-term costs, however, as maintenance fillers must be administered every nine months to two years.
Some of our Scottsdale patients view injectables as an opportunity to try cosmetic changes before committing to surgery. While the results will not be identical, this procedure can offer an idea of how you will look with a straighter nose, a more defined nasal tip or a smaller bump.
If a prior surgical rhinoplasty has resulted in complications or undesired results, fillers may be a solution for patients who do not want to undergo a revision rhinoplasty.
If Restylane or Juvederm are used, the results can be reversed using a hyaluronidase enzyme within hours if patients are unsatisfied with the outcome or decide to undergo a surgical rhinoplasty.

A nose job without surgery is performed with injectable fillers on an outpatient basis. The nose is numbed topically to ensure your comfort.
From there, Juvederm, Restylane, Radiesse and/or Sculptra injections are strategically administered to correct a wide array of unsatisfactory issues, including a droopy tip, nasal bump, irregularities due to a previous nasal surgery, and asymmetry. Once the fillers have been placed, we will gently massage the area to refine your results.
There is little to no downtime following this procedure, the cost is very low, and your new nose will be apparent immediately.
This nose reshaping procedure produces subtle alternations, rather than the dramatic changes seen with surgical intervention. As such, our non-surgical rhinoplasty in Scottsdale is ideal for patients who want to correct minor cosmetic issues affecting the nose.
Candidates for a non-surgical rhinoplasty are Phoenix men and women who have minor cosmetic nasal issues they would like to correct, such as a slightly crooked nose, a dip in the bridge, a small hump or an unrefined tip.
It is not suitable for patients who want to correct breathing problems or have serious issues that must be addressed. It is also important to note that the results are temporary and last for 9 to 24 months, dependent upon what product is used. At that point, maintenance injections will be necessary to preserve your new nose.
The results of a non-surgical rhinoplasty will be immediately apparent.
There is no recovery period associated with a non-surgical rhinoplasty, although patients should take care to avoid injury or trauma to the nose.
Most of our Scottsdale patients tolerate the injections very well. A topical numbing agent is applied before the procedure to ensure your comfort.
The cost depends on the extent of the correction that is necessary, along with the types of fillers used.
